Intimate Seaside Celebration

Eric and Krista let their shared love of the coast and nature inspire their wedding day vision. Their ceremony was an intimate affair on the cliffs in Carmel where Eric first brought Krista on one of their beach picnic dates. The reception was held at the Old Whaling Station, a beautiful historic building in Monterey where the couple would meet on their lunch breaks when they first started dating.

The breath-taking views from California’s Central Coast and the Point Lobos trails were the perfect setting. Eric and Krista worked their nature theme into the details, using driftwood for centerpieces and a metallic papier-mâché moon that hung next to the couple during the reception. For another fun touch, they mixed a specialty cocktail for the event and labeled it “Krista and Eric’s Moonshine.”
